Sculpture on the Farm Fosterton Dungog

Sculpture on the Farm is held every two years at Fosterton in Dungog and offers a fantastic outdoor exhibition of talented Australian artists. One hundred sculptures are on display in the gardens, paddocks and galleries of Fosterton, a rural cattle farm just outside the village. The sculptures are the work of more than 50 artists from Tasmania to Queensland and can be purchased both at the exhibition and online.

Although not exactly on the Mid North Coast, I wanted to feature this unique tourism concept for the Dungog region that attracts more than 2,000 visitors! Led by volunteers, it is no easy task to produce an event like this! I met up with Philippa and John Graham, who generously donated the use of their property to the exhibition, and both worked tirelessly, along with with other volunteers, to produce the event.

Despite the crowds, there are plenty of parking spaces, refreshments and opportunities enjoy the stunning scenery and take a stroll of the property. A free bus service runs from Dungog Community Centre to Fosterton. The preview and gala opening ceremony kicks off on Friday evening. This is an opportunity to observe the lush gardens, galleries and paddocks with a glass of sparkling wine in hand. This unforgettable experience brings farm and art together.

As a non-profit organisation, Sculpture on the Farm is committed to building a lasting contribution to the Dungog community. Following each exhibition, Sculpture on the Farm donates sculptures for public display to Dungog for the enjoyment of the community and visitors to the region.
